superlative adverbs


We can use superlative adverbs to make comparisons:

His ankles hurt badly, but his knees hurt worst.
It rains most often at the beginning of the year.


When we intensify a superlative adverb we often use the in front of the adverb, and we use these words and phrases as intensifiers:

easily - much - far - by far




Hello Ruba Issawi,

It might be easier to first consider the sentence without the adverb of degree: "Going by train is the best option..." This is a simple statement that one mode of transport is the best of all the available modes of transport. When much is inserted, the sentence essentially means the same thing, but with the idea that none of the other options are nearly as good as the option of going by train.

Does that help?

Hi Ayank,
We don't have any materials for adult phonics on the site at the moment, but there are some which I plan to publish in the next few months. I don't know about materials for kids very well and my colleague who does is on holiday. I will ask her when she gets back to reply to your comment.

Hi Ayank
Over on the LearnEnglish Kids website we are in the final stages of developing a new section based on the UK phonics programme, Letters and Sounds. We'll have songs, stories, downloadable worksheets, games and lots more! It should be ready to go live in the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy the new materials.
